    Some good posts, but equally some rubbish ones. I'm a bit perplexed.. It says at one point you're 7 1/2, then further down the page you have a wife?

    I meant horrid in the "rubbish" sense, "wasn't worth reading" etc. I've changed my post now to avoid others confusing it!

    Well Daneth thinks im a KNOB!

    Pity i cant put down here what i think of daneth and his ilk.

    I also notice notice that despite being a member of this forum for 2 years, he has only posted twice, both today and both about his trashy website.

    Not funny, not infuriating, just sad!

    For what it's worth, I read the first couple of posts and found them childish. Jokes about members/knobs generally indicate the mentality of a 9 year old. I also found them rather strangely obsessed with hair (or the lack of it), and thought they displayed an arrogance and sense of superioirty that I found a bit distasteful.

    A bit of a waste of 3 minutes really, I'm afraid I won't be visiting the blog again!

    There is nothing racist in my blog. If you mean poking fun at someone foreign (which I may do now and then) its not racist! You sound like all those others that brand anyone with an opinion off the lib lab wishy washy message somethingist. Anyway doesnt it strike you as strange that fundamentalist muslims are on security at heathrow airport when a woman isnt allowed to wear a cross on duty? If it doesnt then get your head examined

    I have lived in the Middle East for 12 years, Hong Kong and Japan. I think if I want to have opinions on others then I will. Neither is my blog obsessed with bald or is that baldist!

    To the questions about me being 7 1/2 . i was joking as i also made a joke about me being short (shortist?). If i was 7 1/2 and writing this superb blog I would be a genuis..... well more so.

    lighten up ladies

    It just seems to be filled with swear words to be honest - something which you only post on when you are in a bad mood..

    For anyone who is genuinely interested in a blog from passengers' point of view, may I suggest Annie Mole's:

    http://london-underground.blogspot.com/

    She posts about both good and bad things from commuting, and often has quite amusing stories..

    Probably the only truthful and realistic comment on your blog is this:

    Lets take a look at a few of the replies that our friend received form other websites:

    Firstly...... daneth's justification:

    and his responses:

    Classic.... lack of grammer, atrocious spelling, not even proud enough to UK the uk..... oh and he called us all train spotters!

    At the risk of argueing with an idiot (something where both parties always lose):
    It is racist. You've decided they were forign based purely on how they dress. Also, many many "moderate" Muslims dress like that, and abhor the ideas of jihadis. So yeah, just plain racist.

    As to the woman who was banned from wearing a corss- she was banned from wearing jewllery. There's actually good safety grounds to ban frontline staff from wearing necklaces. Further more, whilst the arabic dress is to a certain extent mandated by their holy book, there's nothing in the bible with regards wearing crosses.

    Um, you could maybe not reproduce my post elsewhere without my permission? Rude and questionably legal. All you're trying to do by not responding here is make us click on your blog to improve your stats to get a little bit of money from google ads, and to break up the flow of debate.

    I do not have google ads on my blog.

    i can reproduce your comments. i dont even know who you are. However if you want debate.

    This country is a multicultural mess and as we have been told the gates were opened by the labour party in order to let mass immigration take place also allowing thousands of criminals and terrorists in. Still its ok apparently because they all vote Labour.

    I care enough about everyone to tell the truth. Not sweep things under the carpet or cower in fear from the bullies that want to label one an IST of some sort when trying to debate these issues.

    I have a perfectly nice big house somewhere hot that I will bolt to if things dont improve and rent my lovely flat in Chelsea to provide me with a superb lifestyle until my pension kicks in. Until then I will fight for what I believe is right. Anyway why are we talking about this I thought it was a trainy , transporty forum.

    stay on message please!

    Oh aren't you the lucky one. I'd rather not have that "nice big house" in exchange for not being like you. :)

    All I can see from your blog is you try talk to people on the tube and they don't talk back. What do you expect? The majority of British people WON'T want a conversation with some (potentially harmful) stranger on public transport. They'd rather read a book, listen to music, sit and think or have a conversation with somebody they know. Small-talk is boring and a waste of time, so why bother?

    i am glad to see you have been paying attention and reading the blog.

    dont you think i am being just a little bit tongue in cheek sometimes. In anycase i am smartly dressed devastatingly good looking , charming and absolutely not dangerous. You can always spot me at earls court going out of my way to help passengers with luggage if they are struggling while the staff skulk

    :)

    Daneth, you started a thread about your own blog and implied in it that you wanted to know how funny everyone thought it was:

    People then gave their opinions based on reading said blog. None have been very favourable, which must have been a bit of a blow.

    Does the fact that your 'jokes' are not recognised as such say anything to you, except for the assumption that everyone else is wrong and humourless?

    I did not say that you were obsessed with baldness. I tried to point out that you have negatively described two people in one post by virtue of their hair or head. I don't personally find that either funny or tasteful, in fact I think it's rather rude. Perhaps you should consider lightening up and not poking fun at people? Especially when you don't know them?

    I like many other people, enjoy a debate. However, it's not really possible to debate with someone who is in complete ignorance of the true facts, and posts what amounts to a political rant. This was proved when Nick Griffin appeared on Question Time.

    I should also point out that your penultimate sentence reveals further evidence of the superiority and arrogance that permeates throughout the small section of the blog that I could be bothered to read. I don't know why you mentioned it either, the only thing I can think of is that you wanted to show everyone how rich, clever and important you are. Unfortunately, for me at least, it simply proves the opposite. Were you perhaps bullied at school?

    I'm sorry for any offence. I am simply giving my opinion, and I hope I don't get into trouble with the wishy washy liberals that have ruined this country (joke).

    Have a good life.

    The fact you have to post this on a public forums shows that you're either desperate for attention and recognition of doing something (like someone who gives to charity and has to shout about it so everyone knows what they've done), or you're lying and just want people to think you do good.

    Also, calling yourself "devestatingly good looking", especially on a public forum, implies that you're almost certainly uncomfortable about the way you look.

    Give the man a medal!

    The problem there is in your own answer. By the looks of this thread, none of us want our comments put on your blog.

    Agreeing with Greenback, that encapsulates the arrogance and how superior you regard yourself to everyone else you travel with. Either you're hugely out of touch with society (big house somewhere hot, flat in Chelsea, so possibly) or you're really a kid trying to act like a grown-up.
